The New York Times may have inaccurately reported on Dec. 26, that the chain link fence in Manhattan Beach was constructed by Robert Toussie, whose son Isaac, was pardoned and then unpardoned by President George W. Bush two weeks ago.
However, an investigation by the Brooklyn View learned that it was not Toussie who built the fence. It was Jack Laboz.
Issac Toussie’s pardon was reversed by President Bush after it was revealed his family donated big bucks to the Republican Party.

One side of the Sheepshead Bay bulkheads (above) look brand new, the other side leaves much to be desired
Theresa Scavo, the chairwoman of Community Board 15, says the bulkheads in Sheepshead Bay need improvement. She says they may have been improved, at least internally, but the railings cement walls remain in poor condition. This comes after Assemblyman Steven Cymbrowitz and Scavo wrote a letter to the head of the DEC about the condition.
Sheepshead Bay is considered one of the most beautiful sections in Brooklyn.
